🔺  The ‘R-ISE’ Framework: the ‘R.I.S.E. out of Reactivity’ core framework underpinning your journey towards nervous system mastery.

💁‍♂️  Tale of Two Nervous Systems: understanding how your life will be transformed by greater nervous system regulation.

🚦  Three Nervous System Operating Modes: seeing your world through the lens of polyvagal theory.

PERSONAL EXPLORATION

📝  Future Self Journal Prompt: a powerful journaling prompt to seek wisdom from your old self, get clear on your intentions and give yourself full permission to invest time into this exploration. Write this using Futureme.org

GUIDED PROTOCOL

🫁  Revving the Engine // Experience + feel the difference in your body in the full spectrum of the nervous system.

WEEK 2: Interoception vs. Reactivity (link)

THEORY

😡  Neuroscience of Reactivity: understanding what happens when our fight/flight response takes over and we fall into limbic hijack.

🤔  The Choice-Point Framework: catching early signs of reactive tendencies before they escalate past the point of no return.

🧠 Deconstructing Interoception: five ways to ‘taste your own inner landscape’ with somatic listening practices.

PERSONAL EXPLORATION

😠  What is Your Reactivity Costing You? // radical self-enquiry on how decisions made from reactivity are negatively impacting your life.

GUIDED PROTOCOLS

💢  Somatic Mapping: using interoception to track, sense + feel signs of reactivity, fear + stress in the body.

‣

WEEK 3: Cultivate Calm (link)

THEORY

⚖️ Intentional vs. Unconscious Self-Regulation: exploring our tendencies for up + down-regulation of our nervous systems.

🪣  State Change Buckets: learning the three ways in which humans shift their state: top-down, bottom-up & outside-in.

💡  Pre-empting Reactivity: in situations with high emotional charge, learn to recognise ‘dorsal shutdown’ to cultivate greater agency amidst challenging situations.

PERSONAL EXPLORATION

📝  Self-Regulation Enquiry: exploring pattens + tendencies towards unhealthy or unconscious habitual self-regulation.

GUIDED PROTOCOLS

🚨  SOS Button: Grounding intensity using ‘5-4-3-2-1’, posture shifts + the 'Physiological Sigh'

⛈️  Emotional Neuroscience 101: exploring the distinction between emotions vs. sensations and what we can learn from recent literature.

🚰  Un-kinking the Emotional Hosepipe: exploring so-called ‘negative emotions’ and the value in expanding our emotional literacy.

🙅‍♂️ Barriers to Resilience: using self-enquiry journaling to unpack fixed mindset beliefs that keep us stuck in reactivity or shutdown.

PERSONAL EXPLORATION
